Charlottesville attack shows divide

I unequivocally condemn the horrific violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend at a rally of white nationalists, organized as a backlash against the city's decision to take down a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. It was distressing to watch videos of fists flying between rally members and countering protesters. A terrifying climax was reached when rally attendee James Fields Jr. allegedly plowed a sedan right into a sea of protesters, killing one and injuring at least 19 others.

The sides of conflict

Nothing President Trump can say will satisfy the mob. Scheming since the morning after the November election to reverse the result, the mob is on a holy crusade to destroy Trump the interloper, and the president himself keeps assisting the project.

An economy back on track

The American economy has been in a funk for a decade. Donald Trump was elected largely on his promise to see the economy regain traction and resume speed on the road to prosperity. There are encouraging signs that his strategy of releasing the regulatory brakes is working. Combined with changes in immigration policy, the years in the doldrums may soon be at an end.

The Korean Central News Agency said Tuesday that Kim during an inspection of the KPA's Strategic Forces praised the military for drawing up a "close and careful" plan. Kim said he will give order for the missile test if the United States continues its "extremely dangerous actions" on the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea, post-Trump 'fire and fury' rhetoric, caves on Guam strike

- The Washington Times

North Korea just backed away from its wildly wild vow to take out Guam, turning down the heat a notch on what was becoming the media's most favored message of late -- the one that painted President Donald Trump as the crazed White House madman, steadily leading America toward a path of fire and destruction. Hmm. Guess who's red-faced now?

A riot with an unwelcome lesson

The Washington Times

The media mob wasted no time in descending on Charlottesville, and the first order of business was to exploit the bigotry, tragedy and evil to make it the work of the Republicans, conservatives, and above all, Donald Trump.
